Château Rocheyron Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2018
97 pts James Suckling, 95 pts Wine Spectator

“Blackberry, chocolate-powder and walnut aromas follow through to a full body with round, chewy tannins. Super structure and power. Turns tight and focused on the finish. Needs many years to soften. Try after 2026”- James Suckling

“This is very suave right from the start, with a velvety-textured wave of cassis, warmed plum sauce and steeped cherries leading the way, while black tea, alder, bay and sweet tobacco notes fill in behind. Buried minerality on the very fine-grained finish. Serious juice. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2036. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,000 cases made.”- Wine Spectator

Château Rocheyron is situated in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, just 3.6km from the centre of Saint-Émilion, on the edge of the celebrated limestone plateau. Peter is set on creating (or re-creating) a new norm – a return, in a sense, to the past but with all of the advantages of contemporary winemaking knowledge. He wants the wine to be as natural as possible and relishes in the advanced age of the vines, despite their limited yields. Farmed organically, Peter intends to move towards biodynamic disciplines, which is how he works in Spain. A firm believer that wine is made in the vineyard, this property is being run, in Peter’s own words, “like a First Growth” with meticulous attention to detail, rigorous vineyard management and ruthless selection.
